176 - Build, Build, Build
Has only one seen my mojo? My painting mojo? Nope, didn't think so. Never mind. Luckily my building mojo is here and it's been in full flow.
To get the magnets in the right place on the inside of the tank, I held the dozer blade in it's correct position and then placed a magnet in each corner. Using a pen, I drew around each magnet and marked the visible side of them. I removed one magnet and applied some super glue, then went to the opposite magnet and did the same and then repeated for the remaining 2. Once the glue had dried, the other side of the tank is glued on.
As well as getting on with building, I've also been buying and I grabbed a ForgeWorld Artemia Pattern Hellhound off eBay. The paint isn't too thick so it shouldn't be too bad to strip off.
The Inferno Cannon needs a bit of straightening out and there are a couple of gaps on the chassis, but this should be a relatively quick clean up. I'll be going for a camo pattern on this one instead of leaving it plain like the other hellhound Ambustio - it might even get a bit of extra armour.
The Hellhound wasn't the only purchase off eBay. I grabbed 42 built guardsmen with a variety of weapons. These guys need their mould lines removing and it will be a test for me to paint something that is already constructed - these will be added to the mound of infantry to be completed.
There are also two Taurox (Tauroxes?) waiting to be built and another Valkyrie.
I've got an urge to finish off the Purple Knight so I may finally get some painting done.
Thanks for reading!
